🔒 Serve Phoenix App Locally with HTTPS 🔒
The Phoenix Framework provides an easy mix task to automatically generate a self-signed SSL cert. This is useful if you want to test the app locally with HTTPS.
The self-sigend certs will be stored in
priv/cert so make sure you add that path to your
When finished the command will prompt you to update your endpoint configuration and a few imporant warnings:
If you have not already done so, please update your HTTPS Endpoint configuration in config/dev.exs: config :tilex, TilexWeb.Endpoint, http: [port: 4000], https: [ port: 4001, cipher_suite: :strong, certfile: "priv/cert/selfsigned.pem", keyfile: "priv/cert/selfsigned_key.pem" ], ... WARNING: only use the generated certificate for testing in a closed network environment, such as running a development server on `localhost`. For production, staging, or testing servers on the public internet, obtain a proper certificate, for example from [Let's Encrypt](https://letsencrypt.org). NOTE: when using Google Chrome, open chrome://flags/#allow-insecure-localhost to enable the use of self-signed certificates on `localhost`.
